If you have a Calibre hierarchical DRC license, all of the powerful capabilities of Calibre eqDRC are already yours to use – no additional license is required!
Referred to as everything from “DRC on steroids” to “the next generation of verification,” Calibre eqDRC gives you the competitive edge you need get through these difficult times.
This course teaches you how to harness the power of Calibre eqDRC to:
- Provide enhanced debugging support for designers
- Write new rule decks more efficiently
- Improve performance
- Shrink rule deck size
- Check for known manufacturability issues that were previously impossible to check
- Translate in-house expertise into next-generation rules
Taught by industry experts and filled with dozens of examples, real-life labs, and applications, this course provides theory and concepts, tips and best practices, and hands-on experience. This all adds up to a true competitive edge.
You will learn how to
- Create single and multi-layer properties
- Enhance existing rules using DFM PROPERTY to provide designers with information about DRC violations
- Write complex checks involving conditional and chained expressions
- Transfer properties from one layer to another
- Simplify coding by translating commonly-used expressions into DFM Functions
- Write connectivity-based rules
- Check for design problems resulting from multi-layer interdependencies
- Read and write layout object properties and text from your Calibre nmDRC run
- Enhancing spacing rules to support debugging
- Deriving layers to measure
- Writing checks to find gate orientation and aspect ratios
- Experimenting with clustering options
- Finding min and max spacing to hookup.
- Writing and using a spacing function in checks for three different metal layers
- Writing a check that will find the width of a line at the location where the spacing is most narrow
